sept 14,2013

-- EMERGENCY NOTICE---BEFORE I FORGET---  WHEN YOU COME HERE IN OCTOBER--- THE TOPSFIELD FAIR WILL BE ON..- THIS MEANS ROUTE 1 WILL BE A MAJOR DISASTER.... BECAUSE WHEN THE CITY FOLK GO TO THE FAIR, THEY GO UP ROUTE 1  AND WHEN THE PPARKING LOTS FILL UP, THEY ALL JUST SIT THERE  BLOCKIG THE HIGHWAY   WHILE ONE CAR AT A TIME FINDS A PARKING PLACE...---- OFTEN FOR 2 HOURS--

 TO GET TO OUR PLACE.. STAY ON ROUTE 95 TO EXIT 53A - TAKE THAT TO THE RIGHT FOR ONE AND A HALF MILES TO A LEFT ON LINEBROOK-- WE ARE DOWN THEER 1/2 MILE.  DO NOT RELY ON YOUR GPS-S-- AND IF YOU ARE COMING FROM BEVERLY-- FIND ROUTE 1A AND GO NORTH THRU IPSWICH-- LEFT ON LINEBROOK - FOLLOW THE YELLOW LINE ?6 MILES?  IT BECOMES BOXFORD RD...
***
THE TOPSFIELD FAIR-- IS TH E OLDEST FAIR  IN THE COUNTRY-- AND IT USED TO ACTTUALLY HAVE COWS AND STEWED TOMATOES WITH BLUE RIBBONS..  THEN IT SLID INTO NOISEY AMPLIFIERS ,   FRIED FOOD.. AND CARNIVAL  RIDES.  THEY BUILT A BIG ARENA AND HAD DRAFT HORSE HITCHES OF 6-- NOW THE AD I JUST GOT SAYS THEY WILL HAVE DEMOLITION DERBY IN THAT ARENA..--- SO WHO WANTS TO SHOW A HORSE IN AN ARENA FULL OF CAR PARTS?  ONE SMALL PIECE OF METAL CAN RUIN A HORSE'S CAREER.

THIS IS PROGRESS.??????
 THEY HAVE A MILKING PARLOR SO FARMERS COULD MILK COWS THEY BROUGHT TO THE FAIR-- I WONDER WHAT THEY COULD USE THAT FOR??

I USED TO DRIVE MY HITCH OF 8 MINI DONKEYS THRU THE CROWDS-- WHICH REMINDS ME I STILL HAVE NOT RETURNED THAT WAGON WE USED FOR THE CHRISTMAS PHOTO LAST YEAR..-


**************
NOW WHAT WOULD BE THE MOST INTERESTING THING WE CAN DO WITH THE $1000 DONATION THAT WS GIVEN TO US FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN SEE ON COMERA...
A FLAGPOLE SUGGESTED... AND A FEW OLD FOLKS CHAIRS ON PUPPY HILL...

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME---A NY OTHER SUGGESTIONS???  IF WE HAD A HIGH POLE BY THE TTENT THQT I COULD SEE FROM THE HOUSE, WE COULD RAIS A SECOND FLAG TO INDICATE  IF THERE WEREE OTHER DOGS LOOSE BEFORE I TURNED BENTLEYAND OPAL LOOSE.. THEY GET LEFT IN ALOT BECAUSE I AM LACKING THAT INFO...
****
SHELIA nd brian werre HERE LAST NIGHT AND HE WAS TALKING ABOUT FLAGPOLES AND SONNA TUBES ETC...

********
THAT CONVERSATION STARTED BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL SET TO POUR CONCRETE 8AM MONDAY... IT IS ALL FRAMED AND POUNDED...-- AND THE 3 KENNELS ARE ALL TAKEN APART... 

***********

WHICH REMIDS ME-- WE HAVE THE TREE GUY'S DOG COMING THIS MORNING TIL MONDAYY-- GOOD--- WE HAVE A LITTLE TREE WORK HE COULD DO... HE CLIMBS TREES-- FUN TO WATCH...  MAYBE I CAN LINE HIM UP FOR SATURDAY'S AMUSEMENT WHEN TNE CP'S ARE HERE...  HE SAID HE COULD DO A WALK AROUND WHEN HE COMES TO PICK UP THE DOG MONDAY...-- IF HE COULD JUST GET SOME OF THESE TREES ON THE GROUND  THEN PAUL AND BUD COULD DEAL...  THERE ARE SOME LEANING OVER THE HOUSE...
*********
ROOF IS ON THE ANNEX-- IT IS ON CROOKED-- BUT IT IS UP THERE  AND CAN BE STRAIGHTENED OUT TODAY... 

 I AM NOT SURE WHY I OWN A WONDERFUL ALUM LADDER  AND HAVE ONLY A RICKETITY WOODEN ONE  IN THE ANNEX...
**********

FOR THE FIRST TIME I CAN REMEMBER FEDEX DID NOT DELIVER AS PLANNED-- THE 5 COPIES OF THE BOOK DID NOT ARRIVE YESTERDAY... I ASSUME IT WS FEDEX PROBK,EM          COULD HAVE BEEN THE PRINTER TOO... AT ANY RATE WE DON'T HAVE THEM YET...
********
AND MY OTHER EXCITEMEMNT OF THE DAY---  MASTERSON DECLARED OUR MANURE PILE OF SUFFICIENT QUALITY  TO BE PURCHASED BY HIM...
I BET NOT ONE OF YOU THOUGHT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF MANURE PILES..

WELL WHILE WE HAD YOUNG KIDS AND THEIR HORSES HERE-- WE HAD HAY STRINGS, SODA CANS ETC TOSSED IN THE PILE-- THAT MEANT I HADE TO PAY MASTERSON TO TAKE IT AWAY...  THIS TIME WITH JANINE DONG THE SHOVELING, IT WAS PERFECT  SO THEY PAID ME FOR IT.

BY THE TIME HE ADDS STUFF AND LETS IT AGE-- HE WILL SELL IT AS LOAM -- SOMETHING ABOTU LETTING IT HEAT UP AND KILL OFF ALL THE HAY SEEDS...  AND IT WILL GET HOT... MANURE PILES HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO CATCH FIRE ALL BY THEMSELVES...

THAT IS YOUR LESSON OF THE DAY.
*****
ALONG WITH WATER WIL NOT RUN UP HILL--- SO TODAY, JUST FOR CHUCKLES I WANT TO GET OUT MY TRUSTY SYPHON HOSE AND CHECK THE PITCH ON THAT FLOOR BEFORE THEY POUR IT.

THEY HAD ONE OF THOSE LAZER THINGS...  TO SET THE LEVEL... BUT I HAVE FOUND  A  SYPHON HOSE DOES NOT LIE....
